View Camera Pool Feeds

Previous Next  Print this Topic

Camera pools are virtual groupings of cameras that you can define. For example, you might have a camera pool called "Doors" that includes all of the cameras that are recording the doors of your establishment.

It is often useful to see the live feeds from all of the cameras that belong to a certain pool. The Live Viewer Multi-Window lists camera pools as well as individual cameras to easily see the live feeds of cameras from a particular pool.

You will only see live feeds from cameras that are configured with the live view option enabled.

Create a Camera Pool

Camera pools are created when configuring a camera using Camera Policies.
